Remember this book from last weeks read alouds? Well we read it but didn't get a chance to do much with it, so I kept it for this week. We re-read the book and studied the amazing illustrations. While listening to the cd of music included with the book, the kids painted rainbows. They were told to mimic the painting style used in the book, I think they did a great job!
The Art Gallery
they all picked out their favorite aspects of the illustrations to use. Bright bold rainbows on teal skys, glittery stars, smiling moons, soaring bluebirds and wispy clouds.
the Artists hard at work:
if we have time later today we will be painting with watercolors, for our book The Odious Ogre
